My Father and I have an '86 Mazda B2000 which we have worked on for many years enjoying as a "beater" truck. We had bought it with a blowen head gasket and we proceeded to make the repair ourselves and all went well. The truck ran great after the work and for several years afterward. About four years after the repair we did notice a significant loss of power and being this thing is old, we figured there was something wrong with the emissions or the carb. We also messed with ingition timing but all to no avail. I called Kim and asked him to take a look at it. He spent some time with it checking what we checked and asked if we had changed the timing belt during the head work. We had and figured the belt was ok. He said, your right, I checked it and the belt is ok but!!!!, it seems you didn't tighten the vibration damper pulley properly and the whole thing is a mess. The valve timing pulley is of at least 20 degrees, the keyway in the crank is chewed out and the keyway in the pulley chewed out. The proper fix, pull the crank, machine a new keyway, and replace the pulleys. Estimate was $1100.00. I only paid $800 for the thing when I bought it and the parts for the head work cost about $500, so I was looking at doubling my investment. I asked, well is there any "Magic" we can try first? He said let me take the pulleys off, cover them with a liberal coating of "locktite" that sets and hardens and then needs heat remove later, and then use the impact wrench and tighten the hell out of it. That cost was $200. I said go for it! If it doesn't work I'm only out $200 bucks and my Dad and I have another "year long" project to remove the crank and stuff. This happened last spring about April, we have driven the thing atleast 1000 miles and the "fix" is holding so far. I recommend Kim for his honesty and integrity. In the future, anything I can't fix or I mess up, he will take care of.

Koors has done a fine job with us. They usually get us back on the road promptly, and prices have been reasonable.
